Chicago's Murdered Mayor
Lying in State.
The Remains Reposing in the
City Hall.
Tearful Throngs Gaze Upon the Face
of the Bead.
Tha Fnnarat to Take Place Today—The
Knilre City la Mourning — The
Murderer Experience! Hough
By tbe Aftoctatod Press.
Cuiivgo, Oct. 31. —The remains of the
late Mayor Harrison were borne to the
city hall today to lie in state. Dense
crowds thronged the streets and side
walks for blocks around the Harrison
mansion on Ashland boulevard previous
to the start. In the main it wns not a
fashionable throng, but it was such a
one as in ISM he liked to mcve among
and speak with.
A solemn stillness prevailed as eight
stalwart fire department captains
emerged bearing the coffin. Kight
police captains followed, sharing honor*
as pall bearers.
Tlie cortege waß a long one and its
progress to the city hall, through the
heart of the city, a distance of two
miles, consumed considerable time.
The utmost simplicity characterized
the march to the city hall. The hearse
was a perfectly piain black vehicle, with
no nodding plumes, and no music re
sounded übov.3 the tread of the feet foi-
lowing the remains. Meantime a great
throng hud gathersd about the city hall
—men. women and children. As the
cortege approached, hats were dolled in
reverent silence. As the hearse stopped j
1 before the entrance, the strains
lof Chopin's funeral march re
, sounded from a baud on tbe steps, and
las the <v-k«: waa borne within, sobs
were beard on every side.
The casket was deposited on a cata
falque in the main corridor, surrounded
by Moral offerings. The doors were
opened, and a seemingly endless stream
of people began moving past iv two
lines. All day long they passed rapidly,
seeming as if they would continue all
I night if permitted. They looked upon ■
; face perfectly natural in the peacelnlness
of death. Tbe dead mayor looked us if j
: sleeping.
The funeral will take place tomorrow
morning from the Church of the Epi
] phany on Ashland boulevard. An hour
i beiore the eervice tbe remains will be
taken from the city hall to the church.
The funeral procession will proceed from
tbe cborch to Graceland cemetery.
The column will be a large one, many
societies haviLg epplit d for place iv tue
i line. The j.-.ibUc schools, 10-.-nl ot
| trade, bauks and other places of busi
; ness will be closed tomorrow ont of re
spect for the dead.

I Another Lunatic makes a Demand for
New York, Oc-t. —Sergeant Pagan
|of the Kast Thirty-fifth street station
was behind his desk this morning when
a wild-looking man entered and in a
fierce voice demanded $5000. Seeing her
had a crank, to contend with, and in
order to gain time, Fagan invited the
man into the waiting room. The two
were talking when Patrolman John
"I owe this man *5000," Fagan said.
"Officer, take him down to the bank and
see that he gets it."
The crank joyfully followed Rose. As
soon as he came in eight of the York
ville police court, however, he realized
that a trick wos jilaved on him and re
fused to enter the building. A rough
nnd tumble tight resul ed, the police
man being victorious. Peuding the ar

in the prisoners' pen.

Nkw York, Oct. 31. —Iv an article
concerning the alfairs of the press asso
ciations theJCommercial Advertiser to
day printed some inteiesting figures as
to the United Press. The article shows,
according to the statement made in
Monday's New York Sun, that the ex
penditures of the United Trees are $70,
--000 per month, or $840,000 per year.
Its revenues, up to the time of the pre

western papers, aud also the various
auxiliary associations it is serving east
and south, figured annual total of
$523 000, thus showing a net deficit per

A Decided Diminution 111 (tin Attendance.
The Fulling Up Process in Progress.
Mldsahuws Oolng to other
Chicago, Oct. 31.—Them was a de
cidtd diminution in the attendance at
the fair today. Though officially closed
last night, the gates are still open and
the attractions'unchanged, but it is evi
dent that tbo Chicagoatie have about
completed their visits, and the outside
world made its calculations to depart
when the aflicial end cume, not antici
pating the gateß would continue to
swing on their hinges. Svime of the ex
hibitors will go direct to the midwinter
fair in San FrauciEco. A number of tbe
plaisance attractions are going there:
othets are going to the Atnrtista exposi
tion at Augusta,Ga.,which opens Novem
ber 14th and continues until December
Mill. The manager* of the last-named
exposition have arranged with some
who hav<i feer> retained by California !o
.come tt/ Augusta first and proceed
thence to the Pacific coast.
The exhibitors are not scrambling to
get, away. Preparations are going on in
all the buildings preparatory to mov
ing, but so quietly that visitors are
no* annoyed. The plaisance people hate
to move. Some of them say they are
going to stay two weeks longer, hut
Director General Davis says they are
not, and today an order was issued
prohibiting any one from walking
through the plaisance, except by official
Buffalo Bill'? Wild West show gave its
final performance tonight, and tomorrow
the heterogeneous exhibit will disband.
During the past six months the Ilutfalo
Bill show played to 3,000,000 people.
The men had their official cloning
veaterday, and the women of the fair
had then turn today. Exercises were
held in the Women's building, aud all
the distinguished ladies identified with
the exhibition were present. Mrs. Tot
ter Palmer made the closing address.
She said in part: "Mingled with our
regret at neeing the exposition and thia
great opportunity for womeu coining to
a close, is a feeling of satisfaction that
the aims and ends proposed by tbe
board of lady managers were carried tb
a successful conclusion. We trust such
a sentiment has been created that here
after no woman will be forced to conceal
her sex and identity in order to secure
just treatment."

All Hope of Having the City or New
York A llalidoned.
San Franci?co, Oct. 31.—There is now
very little hope entertained of ever
getting the wreck of the steamer City of
New York off the rocks, where she ran
last Thursday while passing out the
Golden Gate. Until this afternoon the
sea has been as smooth as glass. About
i noon today the wind began blowing a
stilf breeze, which? increased to 2<i
knots. Seas broke repeatedly Over the
wreck. The tenders found it dajigerons
to lay along side and retnrne'd to the
city, bringing the New York's crow
along, it ia thought that if the sea con
tinues to rise, tho now deserted wreck
will break up and einkdnringthe night.

Moors Making It Hot for the

'Die Spanish Forces Suffer Heavy
I'rlsnners Multllaled In a Manner Too
Horrible to Contemplate—A Bour
bon Prlncn Among the
Missing. *
By the Associated I'rosi.
Madkid, Oct. 31. — The Bteamship
Africa, from Meiilla, arrived at Malaga
today and brought the information that
General Ortega succeeded in relieving
the garrison of Rostro Gordo and
Caberizas. '1 he Moors continue to make
desultory attacks upon the Spanish for
tifications, in spite of the fire of tbe
forts, which is continuously directed
upon them. It is thought th# Moors
will make another attack upon the
Spanish forceß before reiniorcing troops
arrive there, as it was noticed when
the Africa sailed that detachments of
Moors were arriving to reinforce tbe
alrendy immense horde of native troops
surrounding the Spaniaids. The bol
dieis at Fort Oamalos are in the worst
position, being most exposed to the
Arab attack. It is no longer donied
that the Arabs and Moors aronnd
Meiilla are now betieging the Span
iards, and the latter have all they can
do to hold their own. Kvery day which
elapses without the arrival of reinforce
ments increases the gravity of the situ
ation and will force Spain lo send more
men to the front if site desireß io drive
those lighting tribesmen from the hills.
Late .—A special dispatch just re
ceived here from Meiilla has cauaed
quite a commotion. The exact facts in
connection with the dispatch are cot
made public, but enough is known to
warrant the assertion that the military
officers are discussing the great diiler
enco existing between tbe reports of the
number killed and wounded in the last
battle before Meiilla, as given out from
official sources and those just received,
liie latter assert that at least 100 Span
iards were killed and that more than
;J0l) were wounded and that over 100
were captured, while others are re
ported missing, 'the fate of the
wounded, captured and missing is said
to be too terrible to contemplate, in view
of the shocking manner in which a
number of wounded are already known
to have been mutilated.
The fact that Prince Ferdinand Bour
bon is missiug since tbe Spanish attack
on the Moors last Friday, hna caused
Infanta Isabella . much anxiety. Ihe
prince waa last seen clos* to nil battery
outside of Fort Cabrorizat, and it is sup
posed he succeeded in reaching one of
the blockaded forts which have just
been relieved. The minister of war bas
ordered inquiries to be made in regard
to the prince.
Uneaaiuesa Felt Over Itussla'a Intimacy
With France.
Bkhi.in, Oct. 81, —There is no disguis
ing the fact that considerable uneasiness
exists in Europe at present; and this
uneasiness is increasing as the nature of
the Franco-Russian alliance becomes
known. The Hamburger Nachrichten,
in an article which the best informed
people assert was at least instigated by
Kismarck, accounts for the Russian reply
to the French advances on the ground
that Russia would be driven into the
arms of Frauce by growing suspicions of
Germany's intimacy with England. It
"The Dierbnnd in no way threatens
Russia, but as soon as Rursia became
suspicious that it would be exercised in
defense of England's anW-Russian inter
ests, Russia's resentment waa immedi
ately aroused."
The Nachi ichten also makes the asser
tion that a secret treaty exists between
Russia aud Italy, by which the farmer
agrees to mediate in Italy's favor in
Paris, under certain contingencies.
The Dean of Down It . h-s a Itow In the

Dublin, Oct. 31.—At the annual dio
cenan synod of County Down today the
dean of Down propored a motion thank
ing God for the rejection of the home
rule bill by the house of lords, and
thanking the Unionist peers for oppos
ing the measure. Dr. Wright made an
amendment describing the action of the
lord%as narrow-minded and suicidal.
An exciting scene followed, a babel of
voices protesting against the amend
ment amid a storm of hisses. Key. Dr.
Hunt tecondetl Wright's amendment
nnd made a speech describing the lords
as ruffians. The members of the synod
became infuriated, and Grand Orange

A vote was finally takoii on Wright's
amendment and it wus rejected.

Chicago, Oct. 31.—Shortly after mid
night last night two men brought a
heavy trunk to the Kock Island station
and had it checked to Aramosa, la.
An hour later, the baggageman,
suspecting all was not right,
sent for the police and had
it opened. They were horrified at find
ing it contained the body of a man
wrapped in oil cloth. No marks of vio

the feet waa a tag, euch as is used at the

supposed the body was intended

London, Oct. 31. —The Times has the
following advices from Kio de Janeiro
under date of October 27th : Tbe in
surgent fleet, in conjunction with Fort
Villigaignon, daily bombards Nitcberoy, j
Banta Cruz and San Jose, but the fire is
badly directed. Tbis city is bo far not ■
damaged. Nitcberoy has suffered bo- '
vere'.y, though no loss of life has re
sulted. The provisional government,
which haa been firmly established at
Desterro and Santa Catherine, is organ
izing land forces'. The insurgents have
plenty of munitions of war. A decisive
action by Admiral Mello is expected
shortly. The Rspublica rammed the
transport Kio de Janeiro, which veai
conveying 11(H) troops to Santos, and 500
of the troopa were drowned. Admiral
Mello confirms the truth of this report.
He de.ima that he haa any intention of

No Secret Treaty Between Brazil and
the United State*.
London, Oct. 31.—The Brazilian min
ister in thiß city, in an interview regard
ing the alleged secret treaty between the
United States and Brazil, is qnoted aa
saying: "I received adiepatch from my
government yesterday making a state
ment similar to the one cabled to the
Associated Press. While it ia possible
such a treaty ia in general
conception, but as yet does not exist,
you can depend upon it there is a good
understanding between the two repub
lics, and that the United States will not
permit the restoration of the monarchy
jf it can prevent it. The American
warships have not gone to Kio de Ja
neiro for nothing."
Wabiiinuton, Oct. 31. —The report
that the Brazilian minister in London
stated that he received a telegram from
hia government stating that a secret
treaty had been made between Brazil
and the United Stateß, is not received
with credence by the secretary of state
and the Brazilian minister here. Men
doca, the Brazilian miniater, aaid:
"There can certainly be no truth iv the
statement. Ido not think tbe Brazilian
minister in London made the atatement
accredited to him. He certainly has
been misrepresented. I know nothing
of a treaty having been entered into be
tween Brazil and the United States."
Secretary Oreßham aaid: "I can
acarcely believe the Brazilian minister
made any such atatement, for there is
not a particle of foundation for it."

Silver Men Will Make a Fight

The Repeal Bill Can Only Be
Passed by Force.

About a (Quorum.
The Cloture to Be Invoked, >au Voting
to Begin I'erhap. Thia Kveolng.
Proceeding. In Uoum
and Senate.
By the Associated Press.
Washington, Oct. 31.—The silver
men, or tbe niost intense Bilver men in
the house, will, it is said, insist that the
repeal bill be put through by force, and
without any agreement on their part as
to the time when debate shall end or
anything else. They say they mean to
he forced into submission. The mode of
procedure in the house tomorrow will
probably be as follows:
Aa soon as the speaker lava the hill
beiore the house, Wilson of West Vir
ginia will move that the house con onr
in the senate amendments, and ">on
that he will demand the previous <t -a
tion. Then some one will suggest that
time be given for debate. Wilson v, til
insist upon the previoua question. Then
filibustering will begin.
It is doubtful how much strength the
silver men wili have, but there is liitle
doubt that these men will have eutlh'ient
strength to call for the yeaß and nays,
and that will force the committee on
rules to report a cloture resolution.
This will be done if filibustering begins.
The repealers have been worried
about a quorum, and today could count
but I<>s members who voted against ail
the amendments when the bill waa
pending in the house before; ami if all
the other members, about 130. who
supported silver in some form, should
refuse to vote oa the various motions, it
would leave tlie house without a quo
rum. Hut it is understood they will uot
do this.
Bland will be given an opportunity to
move the commitment of the bill to his
committee on coinage, weights and
measures, as euch a motion ia privileged
under the Miles. It wil\ of bourse, be
voted down. It is probable the rules
committee will fix the time for voting on
the bill at some time tomorrow evening,
perhaps about 5 o'clock. •

Washington. Oct. 21.—At the opening
of the lu/use thia .Doming, Livingston
of Georgia asked unanimous consent for
the silver repeal bill to he taken up at
once. Bland and the other Bilver men
objected and the bill went over under
the rules till tomorrow.
The crowds which filled the galleries
were disappointed at this result of the
expected exci:ing fight. There wero
fully 250 members present when th(p
house was called to order.
After reading the journal, the joint
resolution transferring the world's fair
model battleship to the state of Illinois
for use as an armory by the state's
naval militia, was agreed to.
At the conclusion of Gates' on
hia bill to reform the naturalization
lawa, Tim Campbell of New York served
notice that he was opposed to the Knl,
and Goldsier of Chicago, who followed,
made a scathing denunciation of Ihu
SDirit which dictated the naturalization
The secretary of the senate at thil
point came in with the repeal bill aa
passed by that body. Ita presentation
created scarcely a ripple, and the house
continued with routine business till the
morning hour expired.
Then Livingston made hia motion for
unanimous consent and failed to seenre
It, Bland, on behalf of himself and
othors. malting a vehement protest.
McMillin, from tbe committee on
ways and means, then called up the bill
to remit the dutiea on the ammunition
imported for the use of the navy during
| the trouble between the United Statea
and Chile. The bill furnished the text
■ for a npeech by Reed. His criticism of
Democratic economy led to a very lively
tilt between the ex-speaker and Dockery
of tho appropriations committee. The
bill passed.
The debate on the bankruptcy bill wej
then resumed Wolverton of Pennßyl*
vania Bpoke in support of the bill.
